Immediately impressed by surroundings as we drove through the gate. Very efficient reception staff and although our room wasn't ready we were immediately given our wrist band so that we could enjoy lunch in the buffet. The 2rooms given to us were next to each other and both of a good size, they were clean and very welcoming. The pool... More

Our group of 4 stayed at the Iberostar in July/August 2014. We were in a junior suite in block 20 which is in a prime position a short walk from the restaurants, reception, theatre and spa and a short walk to the beach. There is a small pool right outside this block too. Our room was beautiful and was kept... More

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Iberostar Varadero. Mixed family group of 6 ranging in age from 8 to 74!. Lovely hotel, rooms are really big and beds are soooo comfy. Stayed in Block 19, great central location, close to all the amenities. As per other reviews the hotel isn't to the same 5* standard that we have stayed... More

I say "for Cuba" as I prefer to stay in 5 star resorts only, and a Cuban 5 star is not quite the equivalent of a Mexican 5 star. The hotel was adorable and very clean. The staff is what really made this trip incredible. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and interactive. The ocean at this resort is incredible.... More

This is a large complex with 14 or so 3 storey apartments but please don't let that put you off. They are located away from the main areas (restaurants, stage for evening entertainment, pools, activity areas) and situated in beautifully kept gardens. The gardens are quiet and the area is never busy. The buffet style restaurants offered an amazing choice... More
